Looking forward to the sacond episode of the virus epidemic tonight!!! I love a show that is not dumbed down. I'm good with a lot of medical terminology, but I still have to research some of the dialog....and I love that I learn things from this show. On the other hand, that could probably why the show has not been widely embraced. It can wear your brain out!!!

Sad, but I can't catch it tonight. (Pardon the pun.) LOL I have set to record though, so I should catch up by the end of the week. I'll come here to discuss though. I don't mind knowing what's going to happen before I see it.
The April 10 episode is the season finale.
